Overview

With the emergence of sick building syndrome in the 1970s and the emphasis on LEED standards today, interior designers are interested in the topics of health and sustainability. Health, Sustainability, and the Built Environment examines the concept of sustainability as it pertains to sustaining human health. By analyzing the many ways that humans interact with the built environment, the text teaches students how to identify both the positive and negative effects that their designs can have on the health of the occupants.
